Scots denied by late penalty

Scotland's Euro 2012 qualifying hopes are all but over after a controversial last-minute penalty gave Czech Republic a 2-2 draw in their Group I qualifier at Hampden.

Kenny Miller put the home side ahead a minute from the break from a pass by skipper Darren Fletcher but that was levelled in the 78th minute by midfielder Jaroslav Plasil.

Fletcher restored Scotland's lead three minutes later but in the 89th minute Scots' substitute Danny Wilson conceded a penalty with a tackle on Jan Rezek and Michal Kadlec equalised from the spot to keep the visitors five points ahead of the Scots in second place.

Scotland were denied a late penalty claim when Christophe Berra was booked for diving.
